Believe Out Loud Workshop at Newark Convention

On Saturday, Jan. 28th, The OASIS (the LGBT Ministry of the Diocese of Newark) and Integrity will present a workshop about the Believe Out Loud campaign at the Annual Convention of the Diocese of Newark at the Parsippany Hilton.

Believe Out Loud is a multi-denominational campaign to identify, equip and promote congregations that are inclusive and welcoming LGBT persons.  In 2010, Integrity, TransEpiscopal and the OASIS diocesan ministries in numerous dioceses undertook the work of promoting Believe Out Loud within the church.

The program, which is free, encourages congregations to intentionally include LGBT persons in their efforts to welcome visitors and newcomers.  There are educational materials available about various topics.
